The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He put in full practices on both Thursday and Friday. Engram is sitting just 19th among TEs in PPR points per game and returns as a low-end TE1 option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to play against the Redskins this weekend, but we'll continue to track his status over the next few days. Engram will be a low-end TE1 if he suits up on Sunday.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Giants S Landon Collins is headed to IR with a shoulder injury that will require surgery. That leaves an already-weak defense without arguably its best player for the final 4 games. It also leaves IDP owners without a top-5 fantasy DB. Michael Thomas looks like the fill-in but would make for a risky lineup replacement in Week 14. We'll see if he gives us a performance that points to usability over the final 2 weeks of most fantasy seasons.

Giants S Landon Collins suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Bears and will miss next Sunday's visit to Washington, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The report gives no specifics on the injury so far, adding that the team will "evaluate" it "going forward." Collins' absence is bad news for the Giants' team D in an upside matchup with Mark Sanchez and a Washington offense ravaged by injury. It's good news, however, for Washington TE Jordan Reed.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Bears. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 14. Rhett Ellison will serve as New York's lead TE this weekend but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) will miss his 2nd straight practice on Thursday, HC Pat Shurmur said. He's a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. That'll leave Rhett Ellison as New York's lead TE, but he'd be a desperation fantasy play.

The Giants have ruled ILB Alec Ogletree out for Sunday's game against Washington with a hamstring injury. That will leave ILB B.J. Goodson wearing the green dot and likely playing at least a near-full snap share. We've added Goodson to the Week 8 LB rankings, and he'll carry tackle upside beyond his ranking in what could/should be a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson.

The Giants have activated WR Corey Coleman from their practice squad. The 2016 first-rounder has bounced around to 4 different teams already this season and has yet to make an appearance. We'll see if he gets on the field for the rebuilding/tanking Giants. There's opportunity behind Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.

The Giants have traded DT Damon Harrison to the Lions a day after trading CB Eli Apple to the Saints. Harrison should improve the Detroit run defense and could see a tackle increase back with a defense that works from a 4-3 base. We’ll see how quickly he can claim a starting role. Apple should soon make his way into New Orleans’ top 3 at CB but doesn’t alter the outlook for the team D.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for what should be a high-scoring affair against the Falcons on Monday night. Engram sits inside TE1 territory in the Week 7 Rankings.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing last week and is now on track to return for Monday night's game against the Falcons. A healthy Engram remains an easy TE1.

Giants TE Rhett Ellison (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. TE Evan Engram (knee) is also out. That leaves Scott Simonson as New York's lead TE. He's obviously not a fantasy option. Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley will dominate targets for the G-Men.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice this week, putting him on track to return for Week 7. Rhett Ellison gets another game as New York's lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a limited practice on Tuesday. It looks like he has a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. We should have a better idea of his status after tomorrow's practice.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) "has a shot" to play against the Eagles on Thursday night, HC Pat Shurmur said Monday. Engram will be 2-and-a-half weeks removed at that point from an injury that was expected to sideline him 2-4 weeks. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation over the next couple of days.

The Giants have ruled OLB Olivier Vernon (ankle) out once again. He returned to practice this week but still has yet to play this regular season

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) is not listed on the final injury report. He had a procedure early in the week to remove a cyst from his back but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Shepard is a low-end fantasy play vs. Carolina’s 10th-ranked WR defense.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll play against the Panthers' 10th-ranked WR defense this weekend. Shepard is a low-end WR3 in that matchup.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was held out of Wednesday's practice after having a procedure to remove a cyst from his lower back, HC Pat Shurmur said. Shurmur added that he expects Shepard back at practice later this week, which presumably means he'll play against the Panthers on Sunday. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
